Sounds of The Forbidden City

Celebrate Chinese New Year

"Wen Zhao must be the Jimi Hendrix of the Chinese Pipa.”
THE WHOLENOTE MAGAZINE

Bring in the Chinese New Year with this China Court Trio that evokes the majesty and mystery of Imperial China in the collections of Court music of the legendary dynasties.

They draw from repertories ranging from ancient Chinese poetry to the Qing dynasty.

The China Court Trio features the court instruments: Pipa, Xiao (vertical flute) and Xun (5,000 year old historical clayed flute), and GuZheng (Zither).
